Siemens Enterprise Communications Selected as Official Network and Voice Communications Provider for Interop Las Vegas 2010

Enterasys Network Infrastructure and OpenScape Voice Will Power, Connect and Protect the World's Largest Global Technology Event

ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwire - March 29, 2010) -  Siemens Enterprise Communications today announced that it has been selected as the official InteropNet 2010 provider of network infrastructure and voice solutions for Interop Las Vegas and New York. The company's award-winning Enterasys, OpenScape and OpenStage families of infrastructure, communications and telephony products will supply reliable, high-speed network connectivity and voice solutions for 400 Interop exhibitors, hundreds of presenters and thousands of attendees. 

"Interop is pleased to be working with Siemens Enterprise Communications to deliver standards-based, open-architecture interoperability for our event," said Lenny Heymann, General Manager for Interop. "This will be the third year that we've selected Enterasys networking solutions, so we are familiar with the high level of quality their team delivers. We look forward to leveraging the interoperability between the Enterasys network infrastructure and voice solutions from Siemens for the InteropNet and the event."

Siemens Enterprise Communications: Uptime and Interoperability

Enterasys networking solutions will again leverage automated provisioning features to connect the many different Interop exhibitors and attendees with the right level of service, performance and quality. This year's InteropNet will highlight many different products, including the latest addition to the modular switching family, the multi-terabit Enterasys S-Series®, to handle edge access, distribution, core and data center network needs in this complex environment. The Enterasys Network Management Suite (NMS) and Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) will deliver managed and secured open access to the Internet, seamlessly connecting to network equipment from other InteropNet sponsors. Learn more about the world's largest temporary network at

At the same time, OpenScape Voice and OpenScape UC Applications, industry leading communications solutions that use standards such as SIP and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), will work with the Enterasys network and help Interop ease integration with other communication systems that show exhibitors and attendees require. By using a data center approach, voice, cloud computing and UC services can be overlaid in the Interop IT environment, eliminating barriers between communications systems by providing effortless interoperability with other complementary offerings. This will allow Interop organizers to easily integrate Polycom wireless handsets and video solutions, while providing IM, presence, one number service, and conferencing -- features that simplify management by centralizing administration and leveraging existing communication systems, while offering carrier-grade service.

"InteropNet's volunteer engineers and administrators are from multiple vendor backgrounds, but thanks to our standards-based approach and intuitive, simple-to-manage solutions, they are able to assemble the world's largest temporary network and communications infrastructure in less than a week," said Chris Crowell, Executive VP of Siemens Enterprise Communications. "This year, they will be able to experience the same ease of use with other leading Siemens Enterprise Communications products such as OpenScape voice and UC solutions, as well as OpenStage phones. Our goal as a company is to maximize value for our customers from data to device, and we look forward to showcasing the interoperability of these solutions while providing Interop attendees and exhibitors with secure, high-performance communications solutions."
